National Science Foundation - Where Discoveries Begin

The Saddleback College S-STEM Scholars program is part of the National Science Foundation's(NSF) scholarship program in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics(STEM). This program utilizes scholarship funding to support the educational pursuits of academically talented and financially needy students in STEM disciplines. Our goal is to support students entering STEM majors with the financial aid needed to help them to pursue their immediate educational goal of completing an associate degree and/or transferring to a university to complete a BS in their chosen STEM major.

To do this, we will be awarding anywhere from 14 to 20 scholarships of over $9,000 each! These S-STEM Scholars will be selected by Saddleback College, but first must satisfy the following requirements:

  1. be citizens of the United States, Nationals of the United States (as defined in Section 101 (a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act), aliens admitted as refugees under Section 207 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, or aliens lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence;

  2. be enrolled full time in one of the degree programs specified in NSF 09-567 at the associate or baccalaureate level for the 2014-2015 academic year at Saddleback College. Enrollment must be full-time at Saddleback College for each semester a student receives a scholarship;

  3. demonstrate academic potential or ability, with a minimum GPA of 2.8; and

  4. demonstrate financial need, defined for undergraduate students by the US Department of Education rules for need-based Federal financial aid.

We are currently accepting applications. Applications and all application materials are due no later than Friday, April 18, 2014, at 4:00 pm. Note that the application is online, but all required materials such as letters of recommendation, transcripts, etc., should be submitted to:
